Faulty Items

At Zilco, we take pride in the materials, design and workmanship of our products. All items are extensively tested to ensure they are fit for the purpose for which they were designed.

Under Australian Consumer Law, you are entitled to a refund or replacement for a major failure. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and failure does not amount to a major failure. If the failure is minor, we reserve our right to offer to repair the item only.

Please note that Australian Consumer Law does recognise that the relevent time period to claim on a faulty product varies by the product and its nature, the price paid, and any representations made about the goods. For example, a product that has been designed for short term use could not be deemed faulty if it failed after long term use.

Where an item has been damaged through misuse, tampering or abnormal use, we will not provide a refund, exchange or repair. In this instance, if you require the product returned, we will charge you for the cost to return the item to you. We reserve the right to refuse the return of a product in the event we believe it raises safety concerns.
